The RoveMax Model S2 is a small rover wheel used for construction of land-based vehicles.


The Model 2 is the smallest and lightest rover wheel available, but also the slowest and most flimsy one. On level ground it doesn't reach speeds of over 10 m/s and breaks when accelerated to over 20 m/s. Its primary use is for small, probe-controlled rovers.

While active, the RoverMax Model 2 wheel drains 0.5 electric charge per second (1800 E/hr).

Product description

Seeing an untapped market for a smaller design of rover wheel, Kerbal Motion quickly pounced upon this opportunity with the Model 2 - designed for robotic vehicles or smaller crewed vehicles.
